Racism and God-talk

Full Product Description

The apostle Paul wrote that "All of you are one in Christ Jesus." Given Paul's vision of God's kingdom defined by the breakdown of all distinctions and relationships of domination - no longer Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female - how do we make sense of ethnic particularly within the church's theological formulations?"Racism and God-Talk" explores the biblical and religious dimensions of North American racism while highlighting examples of resistance within the Christian religious tradition. Social historians have seldom analyzed the problematic of race from a primarily theological perspective. This volume undertakes a critical examination of explicitly theological and confessional perspectives for understanding and transforming North American racism.Rodriguez offers insights from Latino/a theology for broader scholarly and social discussions concerning racism, borders, and immigration.The first to analyze race and racism from a Latino/a theological perspective, the volume makes use of a broadened conceptualization of "mestizaje," or mutual cultural exchange, to challenge the church to recognize the effects of racial and ethnic particularity in all theological construction.
